ROCKPORT, TX – Houston-based DeAyala Properties, along with a development group led by Texas investor Sid Greehey, flooded the canals of Rockport’s newest and finest canal-front gated community, The Islands of Rockport, which began construction in January 2013. With Bulkhead Construction complete at The Islands of Rockport, developers gathered to “break the plug”, releasing the waters of Redfish Bay into the canals surrounded by 51 spectacular home sites ranging in size from 8,000 – 22,000 square feet. Having excavated over 126,000 cubic yards to create the canals, The “Plug Breaking”  unleashed Millions of gallons of Intracoastal waters into the area’s first new Master Planned, canal-front community since 2004.

Greehey – son of Valero Energy founder Bill Greehey and Owner/CEO of Greehey & Company and CEO of Shale Exploration LLC – is a major investor in this multi-phased residential endeavor. As a current homeowner in Rockport, he easily envisioned the success of the development given the lack of new residential construction of this caliber in years. “Rockport has always been ‘the destination’ for Texans wanting the best of fishing, boating, art, shopping, and fine dining. The Islands of Rockport is a one-of-a-kind development in that it is the only residential development in the area that provides all of the ‘state of the art features’ found in a premier, gated, waterfront residential community.”

The development, located just south of downtown Rockport will provide residents with unprecedented access to the Gulf via the Intracoastal Waterway as well as the famous fishing waters of Estes Flats & Redfish bay offering the best of all worlds for both the bay and deep sea enthusiasts.

Phase One at The Islands of Rockport features 51 waterfront home sites ranging in size from 8,000 to 22,000 square feet. A builder program is in place with a selection of
design-approved southern coastal style elevations and plans so owners can immediately begin planning their waterfront home.
Subsequent phases of the 120-acre development will include 130 additional home sites along with a resort-style pool and clubhouse, followed by a marina, resort hotel, fitness center, restaurants and retail.

“The vision “, said Kiki DeAyala, developer and General Partner of Rockport Islands Development Corporation, “is a thoughtfully master planned, resort-style community providing residents with the amenities of a vacation destination, along with all the benefits of ownership. There isn’t anything like this on the Texas Coast and we are excited to deliver this unique lifestyle opportunity to residents that appreciate the quality and amenities of the project.”

With easy access from Houston, San Antonio, Austin and South/Central Texas, The Islands of Rockport will offer the best of Coastal Living. Rockport is known for its diversity of activities ranging from fishing/hunting/bird watching to art galleries and fine dining with the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets in Texas.

The Release pricing for Phase I Home sites starts from $250,000. For more information on The Islands of Rockport, visit | 1.800.780.3750 | Privacy Policy | A DeAyala Properties Development | Marketed Exclusively By The Personette Group hud
